Horizons painted orange and red and yellow and gold,
Means there will be added garbage bags to fill and fold.
Temperatures cool and people begin to move inside,
Soon Influenza is at its peak, you’ve no place to hide.
Flu shots may help, but you seem to get sick anyways,
Rainy wet weather, dull and dreary, much shorter days.
Doesn’t sound like splendor - outstanding and grand,
But I still think its the best season, please let me expand,
There’s good things and bad that comes with autumn,
The splendor for me, is more clothes to cover my bottom.
